The Problem of Sex

According to everything we believe to be true, sex should be at an all time high.

We learn information from those we appreciate and […]

President Trump called a “Road Bump” at the United Nations: People are Not Obstacles & Other Reflections on the Humanity Around Us

The most uncouth criticism of an individual that I have heard at the United Nations in my time there this summer was spoken during the opening session of the High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) on Sustainable Development on July 9 at the United Nations headquarters.

Save the Child by Loving the Mother: Practical Ways to Help

What do the pro-life and pro-choice movements have in common? Both claim to protect human rights. Yet the pro-choice movement neglects to recognize the humanity and right to life of unborn children in favor of the mother’s autonomy to make a choice. The beauty of the pro-life perspective is that in its truest form, it […]

Catholic Teaching

God is Always Enough

God is always the answer. Former gay porn actor Joseph Sciambra learned that the hard way. His downward journey began at the young age of eight when he discovered a porn magazine left out by his older brother. This led to other more graphic porn magazines and eventually led Joseph into wanting to try the […]

Book review: Emotional Virtue

Recently I started reading Sarah Swafford’s “Emotional Virtue”, and I couldn’t help to get very excited about all of the ideas that she was putting out there. The first thing I always feel when I start reading a book that has me very excited, is that I want to share it with everyone out there, […]
